MEDICAL COMPRESSION STOCKINGS PREVENT NEW VARICOSE VEINS FROM FORMING AND KEEP EXISTING VENOUS DISEASE UNDER CONTROL. IT IS IMPORTANT TO WEAR THE RIGHT SIZE AND COMPRESSION


HOW STOCKINGS WORK: The pressure of the stocking constrict the diameter of the vein. The venous valves can close again thus reducing the amount of blood flowing back down into the legs. You place them on first thing in the morning and remove when you sleep.
